A vegan guide to… Malta

This sunny stepping stone between Europe and Africa has become an expat honeypot. There are international influences at every turn, none more noticeable than on your plate. The vegan scene is embraced with Mediterranean flair – passionately made, abundantly served and delicious, of course! Lara Sierra gives us a tour of the island

English is one of the two official languages spoken in Malta, so you shouldn’t have any problems making yourself understood, even if you can’t speak Maltese. Ordering something vegan-friendly shouldn’t involve any language barriers.

Where to eat

Start off in the Grassy Hopper, Gzira. This is a small café (spoiler alert – everything is small in Malta), which has a varied menu and is one of the most established vegetarian and nourishes from the inside out, despite its Instagram-able presentation. My favourite is the Gado-Gado Salad, although ‘salad’ is a dramatic understatement. Their raw vegan treats are also worth a look as is caramel and you can pop in for breakfast, too. Next, take a stroll along the seafront until you get to the Valetta Ferry. Take the short but picturesque boat ride to the fortressed capital. (Second spoiler – there are a lot of fortresses.) Once in Valetta, enjoy meandering through the ancient streets and peruse the local produce at the Valetta Waterfront, while making the most of Valetta’s title as 2018 Culture Capital of Europe. Check your schedule against for an array of literature festivals, street-borne science exhibitions and cultural arts ‘festas’ for the latter half of this year. There are vegan-friendly eateries in abundance in the capital, but I recommend Soul Food, which has an Italian inspired menu with a fresh and plant-based twist on the classics. If you need to hydrate, head to Strait Street, once infamous for its visiting sailors (wink, nudge etc), but in recent years has been gentrified by plenty of upmarket wineries and cocktail bars, making it ideal for a scenic sundowner.
